CHAPTER 1: DEPOPULATION
THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES IS A MONUMENT IN ELBERT COUNTY, Georgia. It is composed of four sixteen-foot-tall stones that have been called the American Stonehenge. Indeed, its origin is as mysterious as its English namesake. Commissioned in 1979 by a man using the pseudonym R. C. Christian, the monument was constructed by the Eberton Granite Finishing Company and completed in 1980. An accompanying tablet states that the sponsors of the stones are "a small group of Americans who seek the Age of Reason." A message is inscribed on the stones in eight modern languages and four ancient ones.
Below the title Let These Be Guidestones to the Age of Reason, the engraved message reads:MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE.
GUIDE REPRODUCTION WISELY-IMPROVING FITNESS AND DIVERSITY.
UNITE HUMANITY WITH A LIVING NEW LANGUAGE.
RULE PASSION-FAITH-TRADITION-AND ALL THINGS WITH TEMPERED REASON.
PROTECT PEOPLE AND NATIONS WITH FAIR LAWS AND JUST COURTS.
LET ALL NATIONS RULE INTERNALLY RESOLVING EXTERNAL DISPUTES IN A WORLD COURT.
AVOID PETTY LAWS AND USELESS OFFICIALS.
BALANCE PERSONAL RIGHTS WITH SOCIAL DUTIES.
PRIZE TRUTH-BEAUTY-LOVE-SEEKING HARMONY WITH THE INFINITE.
BE NOT A CANCER ON THE EARTH-LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE-LEAVE ROOM FOR NATURE.
Some view the stones as offering reasonable and rational suggestions for developing a peaceful and just world. Others see something more sinister. One conspiracy website noted astronomical features within the stones. The four major stones are oriented to reflect the migration limits of the sun during the year, while a hole in the center stone always aligns with the North Star and another hole aligns with the rising sun during the summer and winter solstices. Such celestial alignments are found in the works of secret societies from the Freemasons to the Druids and the Mystery Schools of ancient Greece and Egypt.
"The monument is therefore proof of an existing link between secret societies, the world elite and the push for a New World Order," declared the website. In 2008, vandals defaced the monument with the words "Death to the New World Order."
The stones' first admonition is the most disconcerting to many, as the world population in mid-2014 stood at nearly seven and a half billion persons. If the Guidestones' mandate to hold the human population to five hundred million is achieved, what is to happen to the other seven billion?
England's Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and a prominent globalist, may have revealed the views of the global elite when in 1981 he told People magazine, "Human population growth is probably the single most serious long-term threat to survival. We're in for a major disaster if it isn't curbed-not just for the natural world, but for the human world. The more people there are, the more resources they'll consume, the more pollution they'll create, the more fighting they will do. We have no option. If it isn't controlled voluntarily, it will be controlled involuntarily by an increase in disease, starvation and war."
Years later, Philip mused, "In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation."
As one of the founders of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Prince Philip once laid out a globalist justification for depopulation. "The object of the WWF," he wrote, "is to 'conserve' the system as a whole; not to prevent the killing of individual animals. Those who are concerned about the conservation of nature accept ... that most species produce a surplus that is capable of being culled without in any way threatening the survival of the species as a whole."
Other globalist leaders agree with this chilling assessment. In a 1981 interview concerning overpopulation, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Maxwell Taylor said by the beginning of the twenty-first century, it would be necessary to reduce the world's population, mostly in third-world countries, using methods such as disease, starvation, and regional wars. He blithely concluded, "I have already written off more than a billion people. These people are in places in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We can't save them. The population crisis and the food-supply question dictate that we should not even try. It's a waste of time."
Such brutal tactics have even been incorporated into national policy in some countries, including the United States. In 1974, the U.S. National Security Council issued a classified study entitled "National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM) 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests." Known as the Kissinger Report,. the study stated that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) represented a serious threat to U.S. national security. The study was adopted as official government policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford and its implementation assigned to Brent Scowcroft, who had replaced Kissinger as national security adviser. NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in LDCs through birth control, and what many have interpreted as war and famine. Then CIA director George H. W. Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture. This policy may even have supported the many wars and airstrikes in the Middle East leading to a decimation of the populations there.
There is even significant evidence that claims of overpopulation are spurious. It seems the real issue is one of population density rather than population growth. For example, according to the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, the state covers an area of 69,903 square miles. If each person is allowed one hundred square feet of living space, Oklahoma could accommodate 19.49 billion people-nearly three times the earth's current population of seven billion.
Of course, this merely illustrates that that the earth still has plenty of room for everyone, not that everyone would want to live in one state. If the world's population could spread out, and avoid concentrating in sprawling metropolitan centers, citizens would most likely be much happier and better off. As is, crowding in cities produces the unwelcome effects of crime, congestion, pollution, and stress. Studies have shown that lab rats are content in their cages until too many in too close contact cause them to turn on each other.
Yet, leading one-percenters continue to echo the tone of NSSM 200 and Prince Philip's remarks. On May 5, 2009, some of America's leading billionaires met in a private Manhattan home just a week before the annual meeting of the secretive Bilderbergers. Calling themselves the "Good Club," attendees reportedly included Bill Gates, David Rockefeller Jr., Warren Buffett, George Soros, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. According to John Harlow of the Sunday Times, the group-while not going so far as to advocate active depopulation strategies-agreed with Gates that human overpopulation was a priority concern. Harlow said there was nothing as crude as a vote but a consensus was reached that "they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat."
Apparently, those with great wealth and power have decided to take overpopulation into their own hands. Dave Hodges, host of The Common Sense Show, recalled how President Ronald Reagan once remarked that a threat by space aliens might be the unifying force necessary to bring the nations of the Earth together in a common cause. Hodges warned, "Indeed, all of mankind does face a common foe. However, it is not aliens. Our common foe is the elite that presume that they have the God-given right to exert ownership over all of us including the right to life or death. And for 95 percent of us, the elite are actively engaged in systematic extermination of mankind."
And some of today's elite can be connected to the same families and corporations that funded communism in Russia and then national socialism in prewar Germany.
In noting the similarities between the rise of the Nazis and modern America, Dr. Len Horowitz said, "Today with AIDS, mad cow disease, chronic fatigue, and the rest, history is apparently repeating. In fact, even the message is the same. The millions of Holocaust victims were told they were going into 'showers' for 'public health' and 'disinfection.' That's why we are being told to get vaccinated. Virtually nothing has changed, not even the message."
The late Donald W. Scott, schoolteacher and author of The Brucellosis Triangle and a Canadian political candidate, has speculated that as far back as the 1940s there existed a high-level agenda to research a viral pandemic of brucellosis by testing it on unwitting U.S. citizens, a project Scott suggests was initiated by persons holding sway over government officials: "The Washington corner of the brucellosis triangle with its military, NIH [National Institutes of Health], Treasury and Justice [Department] components have had their ties to and have largely taken their directions from the New York corner dominated by the Rockefeller interests. And the Rockefeller interests through the agency of the CFR [Council on Foreign Relations], the Rockefeller Institute/University, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Chase Manhattan Bank [now simply Chase] have constituted a vast machine of power and baleful influence whose parts have meshed together in an effort to maintain that power."
As detailed in my book The Rise of the Fourth Reich, the Rockefeller family laid the foundation for many of America's major medical institutions beginning at the end of the Civil War. Besides funding universities and the eugenics movement, Rockefeller largess includes such entities as the Rockefeller Sanitary Commission, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research (now Rockefeller University), and the General Education Board, which expended massive funds on medical schools to produce doctors inclined to allopathic medicine (the predominant use of drugs and surgery).
But many question whether overpopulation truly is a problem of the magnitude being argued by the wealthy one percent and their corporate mass media.
In mid-2014, Business Insider published an article by Marian Swain, a conservation and development policy analyst for the Breakthrough Institute, a think tank dedicated to modernizing environmentalism for the twenty-first century.
Swain reported that while the world population continues to grow, the rate of growth actually has been decreasing since a peak in the 1960s. Between 1965 and 1970, the world population growth rate increased by 2.1 percent. Currently, the world population is growing at half this number, only about 1.2 percent per year. She wrote, "We are already experiencing a slowdown in population growth, and it is expected to continue in the coming decades. The UN's median scenario projects flat or decreasing population size in all regions except Africa. Other projections suggest that the global population may even peak this century."
She also noted that new technology may increase the earth's food-producing capacity, alleviating fears that food production methods will be unable to keep pace with population growth. "It is sometimes suggested that there are hard biological limits to how much food the earth can produce, but ever since the invention of agriculture 10,000 years ago humans have been consistently increasing yields through the use of new technologies, such as herbicides, growth stimulants and mechanization. Indeed, it has been increasing yields that have allowed the human population to grow to its current population of seven billion. In this sense, the earth's carrying capacity is not bound by a finite set of planetary boundaries, but rather is a function of human technology," she wrote.
She added that while population is undoubtedly a factor in anthropogenic climate change, as human activities do create greenhouse-gas emissions, a far larger factor is the kind of energy being used. "One billion people on the planet getting electricity from coal would create more carbon emissions than 6 billion people each getting the same amount of electricity from solar or nuclear power. To combat climate change, technology is more important than population."
Swain also noticed that fertility (the average number of children a woman gives birth to in her life) is closely correlated with development. She said UN statistics show "the countries with the highest fertility rates are generally the poorest ones, while almost all the richest countries have fertility rates that are actually below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per woman."
Citing a clear correlation between fertility and development, Swain notes that as incomes around the world increased between 1910 and 2010, fertility rates fell dramatically. "In the developing world, people are increasingly moving to cities, gaining access to modern services, and the fertility rates of these countries have, in turn, been falling ... There is even evidence that exposure to modern media like television can create downward pressure on family size," she wrote, adding, "This is not to say that we should not do anything to promote lower birth rates ... However, access to contraception is only one of many factors that affect women's fertility choices. Broader issues of poverty and education are also crucial to address if we hope to encourage women to choose smaller family sizes."
Yet despite evidence that fears of population growth are overblown, the globalists seeking population. reduction have continued their systematic elimination of huge numbers of people. This population reduction has taken many forms. Following the 2009 outbreak of swine flu (HINI influenza virus), it was found that the strain contained a combination of genes from swine, bird, and human influenza viruses. Because this virus could not be contracted by eating pork or pork products, researchers suspected swine flu was manufactured by humans. They believed the outbreak was one of several venues being used to reduce the human population by the global elite, who have long supported eugenics, the social philosophy of improving genetic traits by eliminating less desirable people. In the early 1970s, Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg may have betrayed the views of many globalist intellectuals when she said she believed the Roe v. Wade abortion decision was predicated on the Supreme Court majority's desire to diminish "populations that we don't want to have too many of." She added that it was then her expectation that the right to abortion would later be expanded to "Medicaid funding for abortion."
Where did Ginsburg get the idea that American policy-making elites were interested in decreasing undesirable populations? Some researchers suggest that Ginsburg, at some point, became acquainted with the writings of John Holdren or other similar writers in the most militant branch of the population control movement. In 1977, Mr. Holdren was a young academic who assisted birth control guru Paul Ehrlich and his wife Anne in writing Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment.
In this book, Ehrlich wrote, "Many of my colleagues feel that some sort of compulsory birth regulation would be necessary to achieve such control [over population growth]. One plan often mentioned involves the addition of temporary sterilants to water supplies or staple food. Doses of the antidote would be carefully rationed by the government to produce the desired population size." Expressing the desire for "a Planetary regime" by controlling all human economic activity and interactions with the environment, the Ehrlichs and Holdren urged governments to use "power to enforce the agreed limits" on population growth by whatever means necessary, including involuntary sterilization, abortion, or even mass involuntary sterilization through chemicals in public water supplies.
With Holdren contributing, the book noted "a program of sterilizing women after their second or third child . . . might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men" and that "compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society." In 2009, during Senate confirmation hearings, Holdren tersely claimed he had renounced such views.
It should be pointed out that amid the Obama administration's efforts to impose centralized and universal Obamacare, John Holdren sits as the president's director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. As "science czar," Holdren counsels the president on the role of science in public policy. "This relationship has a certain Strangelovian undercurrent, given Holdren's enthusiasm for eugenicist and totalitarian methods of population 'management,'" notes Internet blogger and radio host William Norman Grigg.
G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature from Jekyll Island, a history of the Federal Reserve System, has also voiced concern over Holdren's thoughts on martial law and depopulation. Noting Holdren's early mention of forced abortions and putting sterilization chemicals in the water supply in the 1970s book, Griffin stated that Holdren seemed to have advanced the idea of reducing the population by insidious means. "He was not concerned with the ethical or freedom issues involved with these measures, only their practicality. Now we find this same man, an academic expert on population reduction, at the right hand of the President of The United States," Griffin notes.
And he adds, "Remember, all of those who hold power in the governments of the world today [the self-styled globalists] are collectivists and the guiding rule of collectivism is that individuals and minorities must be sacrificed, if necessary, for the greater good of the state or of society. Of course, those who rule will decide what the greater good is and who is to be sacrificed."
This, of course, is the basic problem 'with population control. The idea of limiting the burgeoning earth's population may appear desirable, as the increasing number of humans as well as their waste continues placing a strain on the planet. The burning question is who gets to decide which segments of the population must forgo childbearing for the good of the majority. So far, it is the wealthy globalists who have taken the lead in supporting ways to hold down population growth through eugenics, drugs, and birth-control measures. Catherine Austin Fitts, who served as former Assistant Secretary of Housing under the administration of George H. W. Bush, has explained why depopulation may be one of the globalists' foremost goals. "My simple calculations guessed that we were going to achieve economic sustainability on Earth by depopulating down to a population of approximately 500 million people . . . I was . . . used to looking at numbers from a very high level. To me, we had to have radical change in how we governed resources or depopulate. It was a mathematical result."
Fitts noted that some government budget analysts have concluded that the nation can no longer afford social safety nets like Social Security and Medicare. "That is, unless you change the actuarial assumptions in the budget-like life expectancy," she said. "Lowering immune systems and increasing toxicity levels combined with poor food, water and terrorizing stress will help do the trick."
She envisioned a pandemic that would so frighten the public that they could be controlled and even accept the end of current government benefits. The growing scares over Ebola, E. coli, and the various deadly influenzas may eventually achieve this end.
Some very strange and scary incidents that do not portend well for population growth have been reported. For example, in 2012, Sara Barron, then a thirty-year nursing veteran, witnessed separate incidences of anencephaly, a horrible birth defect in which babies are born missing parts of their brain and skull. Barron had encountered this problem only twice in her career. Now there were two cases within two months and in the same small rural hospital in Washington State.
Other such cases were found and the state department of health was notified. They discovered that between January 2010 and January 2013, there were 23 cases of anencephaly in a three-county area. This meant a rate of 8.4 cases per ten thousand live births-four times higher than the national average.
The puzzle deepened when no cause could be immediately discovered for this tragic condition. Furthermore, there was criticism that not enough was being done to locate a cause. Mothers of these babies said they were never contacted by medical authorities investigating the brainless births.
A study of medical records proved fruitless, which did not surprise Dr. Beate Ritz, vice chair of the epidemiology department at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. Ritz said such records are notoriously unreliable. She added that state health departments simply do not have the money to conduct in-depth research.
Meanwhile, Nurse Barron said, "I think it's very scary. I think there's absolutely something going on that needs to be investigated more thoroughly. I wish they would take it more seriously."
In addition to strange diseases and conditions, deadly food additives, contaminated water, and vaccines all are contributing to population reduction, as will be described in the following pages. One must ask if this is simply coincidence or inattention, or if there is a conscious agenda to depopulate the world.
